Have Postfix will Travel

Posted in Commentary at 8:10 am by Michael Sweeney Media

My bro turned me onto a site that offers some very slick software for the Mac. How you would like to configure Postfix (email server for those who dont know what it is) in less than a minute? But wait, there is more! How would you like to have a ROAMING email server so long as you have a internet connection? Sounds pretty slick huh? Go to Mac@work and check out Postfix Enabler. And the best part? ten bucks is the cost, a measely ten dollars or the price of a decent 6 pack of “good” beer 🙂

Here is the discription from the site “Postfix Enabler helps Mac users set up a totally-functional buzzword-compliant mail server in less than a minute, the Mac Way. It sets up SMTP, POP3 and IMAP services, with or without SSL support. It even sets up SSL test certs so that you can test the SSL connection. It enables SASL Authentication so you can connect to ISPs who require the SMTP connection to be authenticated. Or, the other way around, it allows you to turn on SMTP-AUTH on the server, so that you can authorise remote users who need to send mail through it.”

I love the “buzzword compliant” phrase. That pretty well sums it up. You can bet that in the coming days, I will setting up a Postfix server on my iBook to test the roaming server.
